On Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 7 p.m., the Sister Rose Thering Fund for
Education in Jewish-Christian Studies will present an original staging
of "Brundibar" at its 18th Annual Evening of Roses.
"Brundibar" is a children's opera originally performed by child
inmates of Theresienstadt, the "model community" established by Hitler
during World War II to show the world how well he was treating the
prisoners in the death camps. The opera, written by a Jewish Czech
composer Hans Krasa in 1938, was performed more than fifty times by
children and musicians from the ghetto. Is it a simple story about
friendship and good winning over evil and overcoming bullies, themes
that survive time.
The Evening of Roses is the major fund raising event sponsored by the
Sister Rose Thering Fund. It will commemorate not only the 18th year of
the fund, (the "Chai" year of life) but also the 5th anniversary
(Yahrzeit) of Sister Rose's passing in 2006.
Tickets will be available shortly by contacting email@example.com or at the SOPAC box office.
